+1 on Tremper's book. The science of avalanches is not so hard, the hard part is will power, discipline and consistency.


while i dont want to completely discredit your post, as i agree the difficulty in execution is mostly mental.. im not sure how you can claim "the science of avalanches is not hard," as every snowpack has different properties, and the intricacies of winter travel extend far beyond decision making.


:roll:

Avalanche science is science. It's not hard or easy, it's just there to be learned. I got your point scooby2, and I tend to agree with it.

OP, I HIGHLY recommend the Backcountry Skiing Book from the mountaineers series, it's full of great stuff:

Our flat land splitter gets the point. Read up, practice beacons, dig pits.....Eye of the tiger, and get out there..listen to your instincts.

Got 3 words for anyone who doubts flatlanders....MINNA-FOKKIN-SOTA! :doobie:
